Build smarter, not bigger. These four designs reflect a modern sensibility with minimal separations between rooms. Instead, your buyers get relaxed spaces that are meant for the way we live today. Sweet, tradition-minded exteriors broaden the appeal even further.

Great Indoor/Outdoor Connection

DDA411-FR-RE-CO-LG

Open, bright, and breezy: this plan is perfectly modern. The combined living and dining room opens via French doors (six sets!) to the spacious front porch and back patio. The kitchen offers a snack counter that overlooks the dining room for easy serving. The master suite includes a private bath with a window-side tub and separate shower, along with a walk-in closet and access to the patio. Bedroom 2 adjoins another full bathroom. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Modern Spaces

wlm327-fr-re-co-LG

Here's a compact home with a contemporary sensibility. Instead of little-used formal rooms, what buyers get are useful open spaces like the living room, which leads into the kitchen and dining nook. A fireplace adds cozy ambiance. Conveniently located on this floor, the master suite features a large walk-in closet, a surprisingly spacious bedroom, and a private bathroom with a corner tub, separate shower, and two sinks. Two more bedrooms and a game room (or fourth bedroom) reside upstairs. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Country Flair

WDF222-FRPUB-RE-CO-LG

Turned-wood posts and a wrapping front porch complement the dormers and siding that give this home its country flair. Upon entry, the activity room is ahead, graced with an ornate ceiling treatment, sundeck access, and a corner fireplace. On the right, two secondary bedrooms are situated for privacy. On the left, the vaulted kitchen and breakfast nook make every morning cheerful. The master suite is just beyond and offers a large bedroom, dual walk-in closets, and a pampering bath. A side-loading two-car garage completes the plan. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Essential and Stylish

GLA460-FRPUB-RE-CO-LG

Attractive architectural details adorn this stacked-box design with timeless curb appeal. Inside, the layout is simple and utterly contemporary, displaying the island kitchen that opens to the great room, a dining room defined by a column instead of walls, and a clever drop area off the garage with lockers and storage. The powder bath is tucked into a very private corner. Upstairs, the master suite is equipped to impress with a large shower, a walk-in closet, and a tray ceiling.
